Windies on the rocks

Phew!! Suddenly the ball is turning, bouncing, doing all but talk. Same pitch, mind, on which the Windies were cruising earlier -- the difference is merely one of approach. You had the likes of Wavell Hinds, then Courtney Browne, scratch around, push, prod, and generally allow the bowlers to settle into optimum line and length.
Ergo, a team that seemed to have seized the game by the scruff is now in trouble -- 296/6, with an hour's play left, and likely to fall well short of the 400-450 runs they need to make a good fist of this Test.
